Re: Vulcan XH558 to leave Doncaster, possible ferry flight

The cynic in me thinks that a ferry flight was only mentioned in the press release to get people discussing the aircraft again (if so, success!) because that's the one way it surely will never leave its current home.

Memphis Belle (1990 version) inaccuracies?

I know there are many, many of these from films we've all seen, but I have 2 specific questions regarding the 1990 film Memphis Belle that I am hoping UKAR can help with (and yes, I could Google it, but this is way more fun...): 1. Would the crew really have thrown out their expensive guns (along wi...

I guess it's only likely to hover operationally when either taking off or landing isn't it?

Korean KF-21. Perhaps a bit soon for 2023 but maybe 2024?
Would be nice to see it parked next to an F-22.

Re: Oshkosh 2022

Lovely photos. I really like the classic jet formations 👍🏼.

Numbers wise, it must be the largest show in the world I guess? (Even if lots are GA types).

Re: Black Eagles question……

Slight thread drift but not sure it warrants its own thread... I've just noticed on some of the photo threads that at least one of the Black Eagles seemed to have a passenger during the display on the Sunday. I don't think I've seen this before for the actual display from other teams - is it normal?...

Re: CAA swept wing restrictions

The Gnat accident also had a bearing on the CAA's decision Basically they've decided that a bunch of civilian wannabe fighter pilots have no business performing low-level aerobatics in swept-wing jets, so they've outlawed the practice. Quite rightly IMO I don't know, but I'm guessing some of them a...

Re: 6 day RIAT exrtravaganza

Super set - you can almost feel the afterburners on that Typhoon!

Best catch of the dump and burn too - how far away was he when he did that? Considering that yours is the best and still looks like you were at the limits of your kit I'm guessing it was pretty distant.

Re: New PM - who would you choose?

Obviously, we're not a microcosm of society or of Tory Party MPs, we're an aviation forum. However it says something that the 2 candidates that the Blue MPs have decided will fight it out to be the new leader of the country would have been chosen by barely 1 in 5 (between them I mean) of those on UK...
